Olson Kundig is a full-service design firm whose work includes residences (often for art collectors), museums and exhibition design, hospitality projects, commercial design, academic buildings, interior design, visual identities, and places of worship.
The firm is led by five owners—Jim Olson, Tom Kundig, Kirsten R. Murray, Alan Maskin, and Kevin Kudo-King—who are supported by eleven principals, twenty-four associates, and a staff of approximately 165 in the historic Pioneer Square neighborhood of downtown Seattle. The firm opened a workspace in New York in 2014 to better serve its expanding roster of East Coast and international clients. The in-house interiors studio, founded in 2000, provides a full range of services, including material selection, custom furniture design, and purchasing capabilities.
The firm began its creative existence in 1966 with the architect Jim Olson, whose work at that time centered on explorations of the relationship between dwellings and the landscapes in which they inhabit. Olson started the firm based on the essential ideas that buildings can serve as a bridge between nature, culture, histories, and people, and that inspiring surroundings have a positive effect on people’s lives.
Among the firm’s accolades are the 2009 National AIA Architecture Firm Award (as Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects), national and regional design awards from the American Institute of Architects, Jim Olson’s 2007 Seattle Medal of Honor and Tom Kundig’s National Design Award from the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt and his Academy Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

We design buildings, renovate space, build furniture and formulate brands for small businesses. Our approach on a project is to discover its 'essence' by telling a story. The story often begins with concepts that manifest and transform into built form. The concepts unfold through careful study of client needs, client rituals, site analysis, context, scale, orientation, views, light, ventilation and material. An important part of this research includes referencing historic examples of similar project types overlaid with today's sustainable mindset. Everything is considered part of the whole and collectively combines to reveal the spirit of each project.
From concept through construction, we take the time to ensure the client has a full understanding of the process from start to finish. We collaborate with building departments, sustainability consultants, engineers, contractors, artists and craftsmen whose individual skills are essential to create the final product. We understand the challenges of design and construction and seize the opportunity to work together as a team to deliver clean, timeless solutions. Since this behind-the-scenes collaboration is rarely seen, we use social media as a platform to highlight the stages of the process. We see this collaborative effort as another important component in revealing the project's story. This story gives meaning and value to the project, to our clients, to the design profession and to the greater community.
